my cat puked up bloody saliva

Can you tell me why my cat puked up bloody saliva? It happened yesterday. She is approx. 16years old. I feel she is very healthy. She is fed only the highest quality food, raw food diet with canned Wellness and a probiotic with purified water. She vomits about 1x a week usually food and hairballs, but never blood like last night. In the last year she has been constipated so I put more water in her food. She seems more tired but still plays and does not seem to be in any pain.

Thank you

well it could have been caused by a loose tooth or perhaps she cracked a tooth. at her age they do start to get teeth problems which needs regular checkups by the vet.

If the blood is coming from the stomach then i really wouldn't like to say what has caused it but it definitely needs a visit to a vet as soon as possible.

i hope she is Ok
best wishes Kate
